My comic queue ran out!

I gave birth to my son Emil last week.

For two days I was in pain, but didn't think anything of it and was going to wait for my next doctor appointment. On the second day, I told my mother-in-law what I was feeling and she told me it sounded like I was going into labor. So I called Brian to take me to the hospital.
The first nurse told me I wasn't going into labor, because I was so calm and not flipping out. When they checked me, I was actively in labor.
I was in labor for 28 hours straight in the hospital. The pain got so bad that I needed an epidural, but partway through it stopped working. Emil was refusing to come out and both of us had bad reactions to the pain I was in. Even though I was fully dilated, I needed a C-section.
My mother-in-law stayed with me during the surgery. I passed out a few minutes in and woke up right as they got Emil out. I heard him crying and begged to see him. I saw him, then passed out again, and threw up before the surgery was over.
He was born with low blood sugar and mild Jaundice, so he had to stay in the newborn intensive care unit for a few days.
I had to stay for a few days to recover from my surgery. Brian stayed with me the whole time, sleeping in my recovery room. It was hell though, I could barely walk and needed help going to the bathroom.
Emil was discharged to our care one day before I was discharged from the hospital.
We're at home now, but I'm still recovering from the surgery. I'm still in a ton of pain, have trouble walking, need help getting around, etc. So I'll be slow working on the comic pages. I mostly just pass out when Emil is sleeping soundly.
But he's finally here, and I'm on my way to recovery.

Thank you. I've been in so much pain, and my husband works during the day, so I've just been sleeping whenever Emil is sleeping. x_x I hope the pain doesn't stay too long, it really sucks.
